Portions of 512 and 543 Roads Closed on Laramie Ranger District
-(LARAMIE, Wyo.) June 24, 2014 – Two forest management projects for hazard tree removal will begin this week and will result in temporary road closures on the Laramie Ranger District (LRD) of the Medicine Bow National Forest.
The first closure is on Forest Road 512, from the 511/512 Junction (Four Corners) approximately eight miles west towards the North Platte River. Access to Pickaroon and Pike-Pole dispersed camping areas will be affected, as well as the Douglas Creek and Platte River Trails. The contractor plans on starting cutting in units closest to the river and working their way east.
The closure is from Monday to Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m., with no operations on holidays or weekends. Alternate access to the Platte River Wilderness and the North Platte River can be found via the Pelton Creek Trailhead and Six Mile Gap Trailhead.
